Come along on 11th May at 12.00pm to the QES small hall to meet our newly appointed Time Bank Co-ordinator and find out more about the new Godmanchester Time Bank!
Everyone who attends the coffee ‘morning’ and signs up to the Time Bank will immediately have gained one hour in their bank!
Time banking is an exciting initiative which aims to get local people to come together and help each other by exchanging knowledge, help and skills. In a Timebank everyone’s time is equal. Regardless of the skills or expertise being exchanged, one hour equals one hour. The Timebank is fully inclusive, encouraging everyone to get involved! The Coordinator matches people’s skills, arranges time exchanges and keep a record of all the members’ “banked” hours. For every hour a participant deposits in the Time Bank, perhaps by giving help and practical support for others, they are able to withdraw equivalent support in time when they themselves are in need. By taking part in the Time bank members have the opportunity to learn something new, get practical help, meet new people and become more active.
Bring along a friend or a neighbour and we look forward to seeing you there!
